piece of legislation to procure economic justice to the farmer former Gov Frank O Low den of Illinois told the thirteenth annual convention of the Kiwanis international here today With the attainment of thest ends the speaker held ways to re1 store the proper balance between agriculture and industry will pres ent themselves One way in which the ills of agri culture may be remedied Lowden said is to change the present meth od of taxation The farmer Is being done a great injustice it was point ed out by the existing methods in asmuch as intangible property es capes direct taxation while farm land is made to bear the greatest burden of the cost of government Quotes Economist Quoting from the economist Dr Richard T Ely the speaker said Taxes on farm lands are steadily and rapidly approximating the an nual value of farm lands and in a period the taxes will absorb farm land values the famfers land will be confiscated by the state and our farmers will become virtual tcnania of the state While agriculture business ana the economist all agree to this the ory said the speaker I have of no chamber of commerce nor any other organization representing bus iness lending its support to the equalization of this burden thru a revision of the taxing laws Another remedy for the existing situation which the speaker pointed out is one which Is being used to ad vantage In England Depletion of soils is going on at a dangerous rate and when farm surpluses are often driving the prices of farm pro ducts below the cost of production we are adding to those surpluses by robbing the sail said Lowden The state and federal governments couli aid the farmer in this by exempting all lands from taxation which art devoted to some legume or by pay ing a reasonable bounty to the own ers of the lands while they Itept them out of cultivation too speaker suggested f o materializeThe air stuhtera of John Livingston of Waterloo were said to have rebelled before leaving their home city and
